Yesterday’s column was a look back on the good and bad things in 2016. Let’s now look forward and hope for the good and bad things that may happen in 2017.
Trump can’t ignore a debt bomb from what is a built-in mathematical result of poorly designed entitlement programs combined with demographic changes.
The burden of government spending is already excessive. But the numbers will get worse if Medicare and other entitlement policy is left on autopilot.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its new 10-year forecast of how much revenue Uncle Sam will collect based on current law if on auto-pilot.
Based on what’s been happening, those of us who have been warning about the fiscal burden of ObamaCare could rest on our laurels and say “we told you so.”
A balanced budget amendment isn’t bad, per se, but it’s mostly irrelevant. There’s very little evidence that it produces good policy, unlike spending caps.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has just released the 2016 version of its Long-Term Budget Outlook that shows federal spending is growing too fast.
Entitlement reform is desperately needed because of changing demographics, but both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are ignoring America’s Greek future.
I hope Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump learn something about spending money we don’t have before the entire U.S. ends up like Puerto Rico and Greece.
While we tend to focus on deficit and debt, government borrowing should be seen as the symptom. The real problem is excessive government spending.
